    Maven2ized site alpha (with javadocs)

    I am in the process of writing a script to maven2ize spring-rich.
    I am already able to compile spring rich already and let maven generate some stuff, such as javadocs for example.
    Next weekend I 'll clean it up some more and do petclinic too.
    After that I 'll share the files to actually maven2ize it, starting making snapshot's, talk to Ollie, Larry and the other developers if they 'd actually want to take it in or not.
    But for now I already uploaded the maven generated sites to my website.
    However I haven't gotten a chance to merge them yet.
    Also the changelogs don't show anything yet (fixable later).

    http://users.telenet.be/geoffrey/Del...nt/site/parent (general info)
    http://users.telenet.be/geoffrey/Del...ient/site/core (javadocs)
    http://users.telenet.be/geoffrey/Del...t/site/sandbox (javadocs)
    http://users.telenet.be/geoffrey/Del...site/resources

    Once again, it's not finished by far yet, so don't base your decision on it yet wheter or not you like maven2 over ANT...

    We're using the jgoodies forms release which is on maven's default repository: on http://www.ibiblio.org/maven2/ (several mirrors of that one are documented on maven.apache.org). It's not the most latest release of forms and Ibiblio should be updated with the latest jgoodies releases.
    We 've included looks in our own repository because we rely on the most latest release of it.

    If the spring-rcp dependency info is now in maven, this should make it extremely easy for projects (like mine) to continually integrate with the snapshot builds!
    Hi, I can't found jgoodies-form on your repository, you don't need them?

    That's the plan: only we have to decide who's continuum server we take (still have to ask on the dev list).
    Since the testcases are running in the mvn test (I fixed that last weekend), my next priority is a continuum server as I am to lazy to keep deploying the site each weekend manually.

    This is all great news guys. I'm sorry to sound the "bringer of doom". I've been a spring-rcp user for quite some time and these forums are my primary source of info. It's unfortunate that all these changes have happened "under the covers".

    Spring-RCP is a great framework, and although documentation is still severly lacking, I'm excited to hear that development is accelerating.

    I'm still quite disturbed that the spring motto of "Release Early, Release Often", has been accepted so poorly. I know I'm beating a dead horse here, but what's the problem with getting *some* kind of release out the door?

    and congratulations, geoffry on getting accepted as a developer. you deserve it.

    busy...

    Well, I subscribe to the developer list and it has been busier over the last few weeks than ever. The project is definitely on a better track with this build. One could argue that with a few exceptions, the developers are not too active on this forum, everytime a "flame" is started here, it is Keith who comes to the rescue... That, unfortunately, gives a 'bad' impression (no offence Keith but you are very busy somewhere else on spring web)

    By the way wireframe, have you checked the website?

    http://spring-rich-c.sourceforge.net/index.html

    It will now be published at least once a week until the Continuum process is setup... and that is better than most open-source projects, actually better than any that I know of...

    I know it is sometimes frustrating and sometimes one would like a feature to be added (I have a few JIRA pending, and if they do not make it, I shall NOT be able to use a release of Spring RC (RCP193, RCP263 anyone???)). However giving everyone a commit right is not the way forward, you can modify the source code locally. If it is generic and documented then I assume that sooner or later (I'd like sooner), the JIRAs will be picked up and included...

    Geoffrey, thanks for the amount of effort you have put in this build process, it is coming to fruition.

    Regards

    Benoit

    I'm a bit perplexed how this project can get *anything* done. I mean, geoffry is a community member that has put so much work into getting this project in a better state with little to no feedback from the core developers.

    It's better for someone with passion to do work (and maybe be wrong), than to just do nothing. why not just start giving out commit access to anyone that's even remotely interested in working on this project just to get some shit done.

    FYI, if spring-rich had a componetized codebase, i for one would be willing to dig in and extend pieces that need work. I just don't have time to learn the complete architecture to be productive.
    I find this ironic You mean it well, but you couldn't be farther from the thruth.

    There has been a lot of activity about this subject on the developer list the last month.
    I 've been accepted as a developer 2 weeks ago.
    We 've already moved to subversion and maven2ized spring-richclient.

    Currently I started a discussion on the develper list about the new site proposal. I am going to hold off a day or 2 before announcing the new site here and starting a similar discussion here, so the other developers have a chance of approving the site and updating it.
    But there is nothing stopping you from joining the developer list and having a sneek peek

    As for the modularization: the build process now supports it, but everything is currently in the support module so it can be moved out to different modules.
    Don't wait to start helping out if you want to help, help now
    Petclinic could use a lot more examples for example.

    Have you been following the developer mailing list? It's been active with the result of the Maven2 and CVS->SVN conversion effort, which has been a community team effort, which to my understanding is complete.

    For the record, Spring Rich is fully run off the community, the "core developers" *are all* community members (volunteers). It would be professional to respect their volunteer efforts.

    The mailing list is the best place for such questions--if you review the archives you will see a long set of threads discussing this effort. This is a forum for discussing user issues.

    On the mailing list existing developers welcome people sincerely interested in contributing to the project.

    I managed to build petclinic's jars and war, but they don't run yet because of some missing runtime dependencies, one runtime dependency apperently relying on spring-orm.

    that's awesome ge0ffrey.

    With how much work you put in, it's a shame you're not a committer yet.

    I 'll finish up petclinic this weekend and upload the beta site.
    Then the developpers can get a real look at it

    Before snapshots can be released, the developpers (Ollie, Larry, Jan, ...) will have to approve of it, so probably some things will need to be adjusted. Afterwards I can release the first snapshots and put up a quick continuum to release snapshots weekly (if unit tests work) and upload the maven generated site too.
    I also believe that spring-rich should upgrade to spring 1.2.6 first, because it has a lot better dependency meta-data.

    any update on this? I'd love to see some spring-rcp snapshots starting to get published regularly.

    You got a public continuum up an running?
    If so, could spring-rich use it if the maven2ization would be accepted?
    I am using a company continuum for my company projects, but it's not accessible from the outside. It's easy and great with maven2 projects (haven't tested my older maven 1 and ant builds yet).
